From EK's website :

Brisbane, state capital of Queensland, is the airline's fourth destination in Australia after Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The new service will boost tourism and trade ties. Emirates has full traffic rights between Singapore and Brisbane, and Brisbane and Auckland.

Initially, the flights will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 in three-class configuration, offering 18 First class seats, 42 in Business and 183 in Economy.

From 1 December, a Boeing 777-300 will be operated on the route, which will increase the number of available Economy seats to 320, with the same number of First and Business class seats. Thus, an additional 2,660 Emirates seats per week will then be available into Brisbane. The Boeing 777-300 can also carry 23 tonnes of cargo.

The new service will provide a 33 per cent increase in flights per week into Brisbane. It will also increase by 18 per cent the number of seats per week on the competitive Singapore-Brisbane route.

Looks like SQ and QF has some competition on the SIN-BNE sector now.

The competition will get even more intense once EK puts the B 773s on the route which will have 140 extra seats in Eco class.

If I were a pax flying SIN-BNE-SIN, I would choose EK or SIN anyday over QF if I was flying J or Y class (especially). QFs eco class product is inferior (B 763s) to EKs and SQs on this route!!! When their A 330s come with all the upgraded features then there will be even playing field amongst these 3 airlines in all classes of travel.

Emirates will almost certainly go back to an A330 after Xmas. Australia is THE VFR destination (Visiting Friends and Relatives, not Visual Flight Rules) and at Xmas it's mental. I'm having to pay a LOT of money to fly to Sydney and back the days I want (ie sit closer to the front - row 3 in fact - than I would normally) this Xmas, and I booked three months up front. EK will make a goldmine (don't like to use the expression 'a killing' when it comes to air travel) with the 773 over Xmas but I don't think they'll be filling all those seats in Feb. Welcome back, A330. All is forgiven.
